One Sunday morning four women at a bridge party in the elegant Gramercy Park Hotel see a beautiful young woman whom they all know leaving a nearby hotel with a man who is not her husband. The sight of twenty-year-old Lizzie Carswell with Billy Holmes is shocking and potentially ruinous. And though the ladies do not know the whole story -- and despite their mutual promise to keep what they've seen to themselves -- it is only a matter of time before one of them talks ... with heartbreaking consequences for them all. In One Sunday Morning, author Amy Ephron brilliantly navigates the social contradictions of Jazz Age New York society and brings a remarkable time and place to glorious life with a riveting drama of gossip, indiscretion, secrets, and betrayal.

A very easy read. This book was predictable and I thought it ended kind of abruptly. There was this mysterey about what really happened that night and who the mystery man was. The author gives an explanation in the last few pages, but it was just not satisfying. Just an ok read with a disappointing ending.

When four friends on a Sunday morning in 1920''s New York look out a window and see Lizzie and Billy exiting a hotel their assumption is that they are having an illicit liaison. They promise each other not to tell anyone. After all, who really knew what was going on? But when one of them spills the beans, Billy''s fiancÔøΩ and Lizzie''s family overreact with predictable shock and humiliation. But what is true and what is not, is hampered by the other characters in the book and soon the reader is left in a quagmire of assumptions that try to lead everyone down the wrong path. The result? A predictable and dull portrayal of stock characters from an era that the author doesn''t really know or understand.
